Although we celebrated the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling that federal law prohibits employment discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation, it is not enough. State law can still be used to undermine civil rights. The Ohio Fairness Act is bipartisan legislation that would protect LGBTQ individuals and families throughout Ohio from discrimination not only in employment, but in housing and in accessing basic goods and services. Join us for an important and informative discussion on why the Ohio Fairness Act is so important, and why it must be passed.

Featuring:
State Sen. Nickie Antonio, Sponsor, SB 11 Ohio Fairness Act
State Rep. Mike Skindell, Sponsor, HB 369 Ohio Fairness Act
University Heights Councilman Justin Gould, President, LGBTQ Community Center, Greater Cleveland.
